Tried & Tested: Ariat Ascent Paddock Boots and Chaps

Wadswick tests Ariat Ascent Paddock Boots and Chaps. Pictured while riding.

The new Ariat Ascent Paddock Boots and Chaps have been getting a lot of love recently so we thought we would give them a try ourselves to find out why.

Billed as ‘game-changing’ equestrian footwear, these separate boots and chaps are designed to be incredibly comfy and versatile so you can effortlessly go from one task to the other, which as all horse riders will know is an absolute necessity! 

Event rider and Wadswick staff member Emily has been putting them to the test. Here’s what she has to say…

“Ariat’s Ascent Paddock Boots and Chaps are revolutionary! Not only are they a great riding boot, they double up as a very comfy, supportive and breathable boot for walking around the yard during the summer months.

These boots are sock-like and easy to pull on. When paired with the Ascent Chap, they make for a very stylish look. The fabric knit technology means that they have a snug compression fit, comfortably fitting the entire lower leg no matter the shape or size. It was so refreshing not to have the pain of having to break them in! To have the support and freedom around the leg from the first time you zip them up is a game changer. No more rubs or sores from stiff leather!

Easy to wipe down and clean, these boots and chaps will be a firm favourite in my equestrian wardrobe! For anyone that is looking for something a bit more special than the traditional style then I would highly recommend these in all areas of comfort, style, grip, breathability, durability and performance.

Well done Ariat, another really great product!”
